Exclusive: Nike Kukini Free

FREE Kukini.

One of Nike’s cult followed runners from the turn of the new century makes a hybrid return next year. Here’s an exclusive first look at the Nike Kukini Free.

Previewed in three Summer 2012 colorways:

- Soar/White/Cyber
- Sport Red/White/Varsity Royal
- Black/Sail/Anthracite

Nike Kukini Free takes the slip-on webbed upper of the original Nike Air Kukini (named after an elite class of swift running Hawaiian foot messengers) and stacks it on top of a FREE segmented bottom. The cool visual look of the web cage wrapping down to the midsole isn’t translated on this new creation but the pairing of Nike Free and the Kukini seems like a well made match.

Launching in 2012, the Nike Kukini Free comes with a $95 price point.

If you’ve been wearing Kukinis for the past 11 years like I have….you might appreciate the new design on the sole. Kukinis are the most comfortable sneakers ever….but they wear out in a couple months, especailly the thin soles. This design looks like it will be even better than the original. But I guess we’ll see next year.

Bring back the original Nike Air Kukini. I have been running in them since they came out. I love them.

There were rumors of a kukini retro last year that never came out. These don’t even have a swoosh on the body of the shoe. I’ll believe it when I own it.
